Millions of users across different continents and countries are daily
engaged with privacy and security tasks which are indispensable in
modern information systems and services. Such tasks are commonly related
to user authentication, human interaction proofs (e.g., captcha),
privacy and security pop-up dialogs, setting privacy and security
features within online user profiles, etc. Recent privacy and security
incidents of famous online services have once more underpinned the
necessity towards further investigating and improving current approaches
and practices related to the design of efficient and effective privacy
and security. In order to achieve this objective, one possible direction
is related to providing adaptive and personalized characteristics to
privacy- and security-related user tasks, given the diversity of the
user characteristics (like cultural, cognitive, age, habits), the
technology (like standalone, mobile, mixed-virtual-augmented reality,
wearables) and interaction contexts of use (like being on the move,
social settings, spatial limitations). Hence, adaptive and personalized
privacy and security implies the ability of an interactive system or
service to support its end-users, who are engaged in privacy- and/or
security-related tasks, based on user models which describe in a
holistic way what constitutes the user's physical, technological and
interaction context in which computation takes place. 

APPS 2020 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working
on diverse topics related to understanding and improving the usability
of privacy and security software and systems, by applying user modeling,
adaptation and personalization principles. 

Our special focus in 2020 will be on healthcare systems, more
specifically on ensuring security and privacy of medical data in smart
patient-centric healthcare systems. 

The workshop will address the following objectives: 
- increase our understanding and knowledge on supporting usable privacy
and security interaction design through novel user modeling mechanisms
and adaptive user interfaces;
- discuss methods and techniques for understanding user attitudes and
perceptions towards privacy and security issues in various application
- identify human-centered models for the design, development and
evaluation of adaptive and personalized privacy and security systems;
- discuss methods for evaluating the impact and added value of
adaptation and personalization in privacy and security systems. 


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Privacy and security in smart patient-centric healthcare systems
- Adaptation and personalization approaches in usable privacy and
- Effects of human factors (e.g., cognition, personality, etc.) in
privacy and security systems
- Novel user interaction concepts and user interfaces for achieving
usable security
- Cultural diversity in usable privacy and security
- Context-aware privacy and security
- Adaptive usable security in various domains such as healthcare, IoT,
- Trust perceived in patient-centric healthcare systems
- Perceived security and usability in patient-centric healthcare systems
- Adaptive user authentication policies
- Novel approaches to the design and evaluation of usable security
- Lessons learned from the deployment and use of usable privacy and
security features
- Ethical considerations in adaptive and personalized privacy and


All workshop papers must contain original, previously unpublished,
research work adhering the two publication types: 

- Full research papers (6-8 pages, incl. references), proposing new
approaches, innovative methods and research findings.
- Short research papers (2-4 pages, incl. references), presenting works
in progress, lessons learned, emerging or future research issues and
directions on topics related to APPS. 

Manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM SIG Standard (SIGCONF)
proceedings template

Please submit your paper through the EasyChair submission system:

Accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the
